Had a great time and saw two Humpback whales mateing. If you have a tendancy towards sea sickness come prepared.

Had a great time. We got to see a few whales and a pod of dolphins. The captain was a great narrator.

Had a great time, crew was helpful and volunteers from San Diego natural history museum were on hand to provide additional insights. Saw several whales and sea lions as well. Bring sun screen!

i attended the harbour excursions tour last year, and althought the Hornblower ship was much nicer, the habor ship had better commodations for the kids.

I brought my 12 yr-old son and his friend (their first time, and I hadn't gone for about 20 years) the second week in March. We didn't see any whales, which was disappointing, but we did see many dolphins. Nice to see the dolphins but we wanted...continued

I enjoyed this cruise very much. It is prime time for the whale migration, so we did see some whales. My main only complaint would be this: I went on the 1:30 pm cruise and the boat was late getting to the dock. It appears they stayed out...continued

I gave this tour as a gift during the holiday season and we definately enjoyed ourselves. We were lucky enough to see a whale breaching (jump out of the water). The guide/captian knew where to look for the whales because some of the other boats...continued

I loved the whale watching trip, and would have rated it a five, if our boat hadn't had problems, causing us to have to return to dock early. Hornblower gave everyone on board a ticket for a future trip, so that was nice. We did see quite a few...continued

I was extremely disappointed and did not appreciate the captain hanging around for some seals for about 30 minutes. Went there to see whales not dolphins. I would not recommend this to anyone. I would like a refund.

I went with my husband and we really like it. I was expecting to see more whale but I think is on luck. In any case ... all was really well organize, they give you a lot of information during the trip and ... they view is wonderful!

I would definitely go later in the season, as we only saw 1 (one) whale... and it wasn't all that great for dolphin watching. I have heard how great the dolphin watching can be if you don't see whales but it wasn't.
I would consider checking...continued

I would reccomend a light jacket even on warm days and $10 per person spending money for snack bar and crew tip. When on the the boat (Adventure Hornblower) most people head to the top. I suggest going out on the bow so that when you find...continued
